    Looks like the crankcase vent hose. No big deal just pop it back on, all it does is vent gases and oil vapor from the valve cover back into the intake. Its a catch 22, the oil vapor helps coat the impeller blades to prevent corrosion, but at the same time coats the intercooler (if you have internal one) thus reducing its efficiency. Most replace the hose with a catch can setup when installing a larger intake.
